When an elderly woman is found murdered in her home, two 10-year-old girls, who are cousins, are accused of the murder. The girls initially refuse to talk about the event. The author explores the dynamics of this dysfunctional family as the girls await their fate.
The author fluidly moves between the past and presents piecing together a family with so many secrets. It was difficult to keep up with all the secrets and lies this family kept. The story is told from different points of view, moving at a swift pace. The tension was intense. There were twists and turns and a lot of surprises.
I could not put this book down; it is gripping. This was my first book by this author but it will not be my last.
